Trump Pardon His Former Aide That Was Accused Of 'Rigging' 2016 Election For Him
The US President; Donald Trump has pardoned his former national security adviser Michael Flynn, who pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI. The president said the widely expected act of clemency was his "Great Honor".

The White House said on Wednesday that the pardon would finally end "the relentless, partisan pursuit of an innocent man".
Its statement described Mr Flynn as "the victim of partisan government officials engaged in a co-ordinated attempt to subvert the election of 2016"
Trump tweeted: It is my Great Honor to announce that General Michael T. Flynn has been granted a Full Pardon. Congratulations to @GenFlynn and his wonderful family, I know you will now have a truly fantastic Thanksgiving!
